Vlad is constantly unearthing unknown or at least (lesser-known) composers on Vox Nostra, as part of his mission to bring the music of yesteryear front and centre. This week we'll get to hear music by characters such as Daniel Gottlob Türk, Ercole Bottrigari, Jose Antonio Carlos de Seixas, and Pierre Danican Philidor.
Alongside the more familiar names of Josquin des Préz, Tomás Luis de Victoria and Johann Kaspar Ferdinand Fischer, it'll make for a Sunday of varied delights on Vox Nostra.

The late medieval period is always full of surprises--Vlad shines a spotlight on Francesco Landini, who died on this day 621 years ago. Insturmental and vocal works, plus a variety of the earliest music in the west written specifically for keyboard, are front and centre on this Sunday's Vox Nsotra.

This week sees the lead-up to the Galway Early Music Festival as part of the live music proceedings around the country. Artists from Ireland and all over Europe will descend upon the bay to bring some of the most wonderful tunes and songs to the festival venues.
Medieval music by Alla Francesca, a programme featuring uilleann piper David Power with Camerata Kilkenny, and the voice and lute duo of soprano Aisling Kenny and Ziv Braha are just a few of the highlights of the festival, which we'll get to hear about on Sunday morning's programme.
